Rudiments (Swiss Army Triplet Version)

Pencil on paper, 109.8 x 79.8 cm (Series of 27 works), 2010–2013

Multiple frottage drawings of a grave stone of a British military drummer who died during the British colonial invasion to Palestine in World War I – the last war to use drums as an active battlefield instrument. Through the act of repetition in frottage making, and the repetition of hanging the multiple drawings in a sequence, the installation gives a sense of rhythm created by drumming. The title refers
to the basic patterns used by musical drummers and takes its origin from military drumming.
